Art Walls, Part 29 + Looking for Art

Thanks so much for all the nice comments and all the pins (and repins!) of my dining room art wall last week. That reminded me of all the new art walls I’ve come across in the past couple of months so let’s take a look, shall we?

I’m sure you’ve already seen this room all over the place but I just have to congratulate Emily Henderson on the really fantastic studio she designed for Oh Joy. The whole space is great but this wall is my favorite part. Girlfriend can hang an art wall! Here’s another view:

I’d be happy just looking at this all day but there are a few more really successful walls I want to share.

And while we’re on the topic of art….. I have a confession. You know how much I love it – viewing it, studying it, reading about it, sourcing it, creating it – but I have empty walls all over the place in my house just waiting for the perfect piece of art.

The worst is my family room mantel which currently looks like this:

I know. Pathetic. I haven’t been happy with anything I’ve put there so far. So I finally just stripped the whole thing while I figure out what to hang once and for all. This is one of those I’ll-know-it-when-I-see-it situations. So I’m on the hunt.

And not too far from that is this spot in the kitchen:

Here I’m pretty sure I want some sort of a fun print and I’m considering ordering either this:

or this:

I found these on etsy here and here. What do you think?

    Art can be so tricky! It’s definitely not something you can rush, but it’s hard to be patient. I really like both prints, but the Manhattan piece tugs on sentiment for me, which always trumps in my book.

Thanks so much for taking time to comment! I read every one and reply through my own comments.
